Food For Thought: Katie, Is That You?

See the photo accompanying this post?

On the left, you have what Katie Couric looks like in real life. Looks healthy and in shape to me!

On the right, the CBS art team's creation, tailor made for advertisements -- an airbrushed version of the newscaster, featuring a Barbie doll-sized waist, of course.

This is why comparing your body to what you see in a magazine, or even on television, is nothing but self-flagellation. You are pitting yourself against an artificial creation.

Isn't this why The National Enquirer has a "celebrity cellulite" cover story practically every four weeks?
